Established in 1995, Eisenhower's Phillip and Carol Traub Parkinson's Center is virtual center with services provided across the valley for patients with Parkinson's and their families. Our Center is recognized for the expertise of its clinicians and for its personal and compassionate care. The goal of our Center is to provide a multidisciplinary team approach tailored to the specific needs of the individual patient and the family.
